Configuring Tomcat to Work with a Load Balancer

When the JAMF Software Server (JSS) is behind a load balancer, you must configure the remote IP valve, proxy port, and scheme in Tomcat's server.xml file. The Load Balancing settings in the JSS allow you to configure these settings without having to edit the server.xml file manually.


To configure Load Balancing settings using the JSS, the JSS must be installed as the “ROOT” web application, and the user running the Tomcat process must have read/write access to Tomcat’s server.xml file.

Configuring Load Balancing Settings

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

  2. In the top-right corner of the page, click Settings images/download/thumbnails/13830194/Settings_icon.png .

  3. Click System Settings.
    On a smartphone or iPod touch, this option is in the pop-up menu.

  4. Click Apache Tomcat Settings images/download/thumbnails/13830194/Apache_Tomcat_Settings.png .

  5. Click Edit.

  6. Select Configure Tomcat for working behind a load balancer and click Next.

  7. Follow the onscreen instructions to configure the Load Balancing settings.

  8. Restart Tomcat for the changes to take effect.
